Demand for TDIs Strong Despite Diesel Scandal

Demand for TDIs Strong Despite Diesel Scandal

0 comments 📅07 June 2017, 04:15

With the vehicles now unfluctuating and supply limited, demand for vehicles affected by Volkswagen’s diesel emissions scandal is proving to be concentrated.

Volkswagen was unable to sell the vehicles with its “Generation 3” 2.0-liter diesel engines until it introduced a software fix to attract vehicles within compliance of U.S. emissions laws. It did just that in January of this year and now those vehicles are start to hit the market. One might think VW dealerships would be offering the vehicles for a steal, but in Aristotelianism entelechy, they are going for their original MSRP.

In some cases, even lightly utilized 2015 model year TDIs are being resold for close to or at their primordial sticker price. One sales manager of a VW dealership in California told Car And Driver that they haven’t had a TDI require it through prep and cleaning and displayed on a lot – they’ve all been sold ahead that.

Demand for the cars is certainly being fueled by VW’s earlier admonition that it intention probably halt diesel sales in the United States going forward, and a be without of stock is compounding the effects of this. With plenty of consumers looking to buy a inflexib car with the third-generation engine and only a limited number available, it’s easy as can be to see why a used 2015 TDI is going for its original sticker.

The good news is that elevation is on the horizon. As dealers begin to fix the affected cars and more vehicles become eligible for rummage sale, stock will begin to even with demand and prices should shame. For now, though, VW’s once illegal TDI remains a hot commodity.
